Thirty-seven, single, and having recently lost her mother to illness, Ginnifer (Obie Award winner ANA REEDER) moves back to her hometown to discover that her high school love is at the center of a violent crime. She must confront her relationship to the act of violence itself as well as her changing place in a shifting society, all while living under the roof of her dead mother’s home. Moving and deeply personal, Courtney Baron’s When It’s You is a complex and honest examination of gun violence and its ripple effects on our contemporary culture.

A NOTE On Tick, Tick...BOOM!

Thank you to the thousands of people who came out to see Keen Company's historic run of Tick, Tick... BOOM! at the Acorn Theatre. 

Because of our incredible community of donors, we met a matching grant challenge made by The 42nd Street Development Corporation and were able to move Jonathan Larson's Tick, Tick... BOOM! into the largest theatre Keen has ever performed in! Enthusiastic audiences and critical acclaim led to extending the show four weeks and breaking every record the company has set.

We are so proud to have brought this story to the stage. And truly touched by your support.

"Hey, what a way to spend the day."
